The transfer window is months away from being opened but the media wave of Manchester United has already been awash with reports linking players to Old Trafford move.
Jose Mourinho is expected to allow some players leave – Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick and Luke Shaw are said to be on the way out of Old Trafford and the consequence of this would be to sign players better than or as replacements for the outgoing Red Devils.
Latest report by the Daily Star reveals that Belgian youngster and Celta Vigo forward Theo Bongonda has made bare his mind regarding a Premier League move. He claims to be interested in joining Manchester United if a move is made for him, according to the report.
Bongonda, 21, joined Célticos in the January of 2015 and has since established himself as a first team player under Eduardo Berizzo. He has featured in 24 La Liga games this term, scoring just a goal and providing three assists. His impressive cameos for Celta Vigo has earned him a call up to the National team of Belgium.
His future is now uncertain following his recent statement.
Bongonda told The Sun: “I could comfortably stay another two or three years with Vigo, but it is not my ambition to spend the rest of my career with them.
“If Chelsea, Manchester United or Atletico Madrid call me in the near future I should be ready to make the step up to join them.
“Every footballer wants to play at the highest possible level.”
United need to bolster their attack with top-notch players when the transfer window comes alive in the summer but Theo doesn’t fit into the category unless Jose Mourinho wants to nurture the star for the future.
His contract with Celta Vigo is billed to expire in 2019 and he is valued at around 17 million euros ($18million).
